libya is a place where the thick fog of war are can obscure who is who i cut the obama administration slack for not knowing immediately who attacked our embassy on 9/11 and killed our people. within hours certainly within a couple of days as the facts' merged the administration must have known what really happened but they stuck stubbornly to their implausible explanation that the antimuslim movie was what sparked the flame that claimed the lives of our four americans. because of that willful ignorance we were the first to call it benghazi gate. >> there is no justificaon. none at all for responding to this video with violence. >> in fact, this was not a preplanned premeditated attack. >> i would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> we have reports that white house said today that the attacks in libya were terrorist attacks. >> we are still doing an investigation there are going to be different circumstances in different countries so i don't want to speak to something until we have all of the information. >> i have first hand experience in t

of the obama administration. now, fox news can in fact confirm that within 24 hours of the assault on the banghazi consulate the obama administration in fact knew with certainty that that was indeed a terrorist attack. now two sources also tell fox that u.s. intelligence officials were even aware that the assault was coordinated by al-qaeda-affiliated operatives. all of this was verified on september 12th less than a day embassy stevens, two navy seals, and one other american were assassinated. rather than tell the truth, and acknowledge that the al-qaeda link existed, admit that the president's triumphant killing of bin laden was by no means marking the end of international terrorism, members of the administration chose to lie and initiate what appears to be a widespread cover-up about what they knew and when they knew it. now it's obvious they want us to all to think that al-qaeda is no longer a threat to america. what do they do? they blame the so-called spontaneous event on a youtube trailer. let's take a look at the campaign of misinformation in all the days following this att

-qaeda-related or linked attack in libya or not and the obama administration hanging up on the video for a long time. >> well, when i saw ambassador rice continue to say that the attacks were the result of a spontaneous effort and our relationship with israel is at a high, you know, i shutter to think, you know, why -- why the administration would go down that road and say that when they knew that the libyan president was saying something different. hillary clinton was saying something different. clearly in my experience, when you have two people show up with shoulder-fired rockets at a moment's notice, it's not spontaneous. it's clear to me that it was a planned and calculated event. >> greta: and i should add, you are a montana state senator. state senator, thank you, sir, for joining us. >> well, thank you very much. greta, have great day. >> greta: thank you, sir. straight ahead, she stole the show in tampa. tonight ann romney is here to go on the record. no one knows mitt romney better. you will too. mrs. romney is next. also she's a republican, she's black, running for congress, and could be t

the obama administration. >> in the book you write about the obama's administration handling of the withdrawal from iraq. the administration had a fresh chance to reengage with iraq's leaders and shape its politics. obama did not act decisively on that chance choosing ahead to take hands off approach on iraq. this decision was characteristic of those obama made on iraq. he saw america's involvement there not as an opportunity but rather as a leftover minefield, a path out of which had to be charted as quickly as possible. explain that to us. >> at the end of the bush administration, the beginning of the obama administration, violence was down substantially in iraq. the question was were we going to keep a small number of troops in iraq after 2011? how would that be negotiated? there was a significant difference, i think, in perspective between the pentagon where admiral mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, civilians, saw iraq as an opportunity. they wanted to keep a reasonably sized force around 16,000. at the white house, the national security adviser saw it more t
. the state filed a lawsuit against the obama administration to get access to the homeland security database which is considered the best information available on citizenship. but this pro skes is just well already becse i'm talking to county election supervisors today who are upset t names they got last night or the names they're getting include people who have already been removed from the roles last spring. >> why does it matter? 198 names seem to be a small number to have this political fight continue. >> an extremely small number. it's largely because the governor here, rick scott, has made this a very important priority. he has said that a vote by a noncitizen should not die lut the vote of a legitimate voter. this issue polls very well people when asked about this are adamant. they don't think noncitizens should be voting, but in reality very few noncitizens have ever voted in a florida election from the data from what we can see. >> clearly this has a political impa here as well. the report that the new list essentially was dominated with hispanames and key political counties like da
by the previous administration and the obama administration to confront china on trade issues. now he's saying, this is a door mat. i'm the one who will be tough. >> that was romney 2.0. that's clear that's the case. one of the specific cases that romney criticized the president on was the tire dumping case, which has resulted in jobs in cooper tire and finley, ohio. mitt romney just senses an opportunity here. there's no real -- there's been no real interest in his career in standing up to china. the president is doing the right thing. i urged him to be a bit more aggressive. he needs to move more aggressive on currency. this legislation would matter. there's no question. the president recently came to ohio to announce an auto parts trade action. we went from a billion-dollar trade deficit to $10 billion over the last ten years. that's a lot of job loss and a lot of jobs we could start to regain with with we enforce the rules that china clearly is cheating. they subsidize capital and energy and land and water. they don't play fair on currency. we stand up to them, it means good jobs and it wi

extensive conversations between the obama administration and the government of mexico about how to get food stamps paid for can a lola and myselves. two illegal aliens coming across the border and what do you think about that? >> it's insane. first off, it's weird. i mean, there is 46 million people on food stamps and, yet, every kid is morbidly obese. it's a weird combination. it's a weird time we are living, in number one. and number two, they should be called the fat and the furious pretty slick, huh, bill? >> bill: very nice. >> i know you like that. do the math. and, look, somebody said well, is he just trying to get votes? my question is i don't know. >> bill: illegal aliens can't vote. can't be a vote play. >> you are building a constituency latino community might be appreciative of the la jess coming into the community. they don't make most of them distinction between people who are hungry and legal or illegal if you are hungry you should get control. this thing is so far out of control it boggles the mind. all about social justice what we talked about at the top of the program. it'
obama. the fact is this administration has a terrible record on foreign policy. you now have hillary clinton trying to rush extra money to egypt when i would frankly suspend all aid to egypt. >> sean: $450 million more. >> it's inconceivable. a house committee chairman has put a hold on the money. that's the right thing to do. there's no reason to send the head of the muslim brotherhood another penny. the president in egypt the head of a radical organization dedicated to pushing the united states out of the middle east. >> sean: the first presidential debate is on wednesday. the administration has been spending most of their weekend trying to lower expectations for the great orator obama, even the president saying, well, romney's good, i'm just okay. does that work if you're a sitting president? >> look, incumbent presidents who lose debates are in big trouble. this is a president who has the begins of a new recession, that with all the economic reports wednesday, thursday, friday are pointing to a in recession. the philadelphia federal reserve is pointing to a new recession. the man

in the polls but recent questions about his administration's handling of the terrorist attack in libya have potentially left president obama vulnerable on one of his core strengths, foreign policy and given mitt romney a new opening. the administration is in the hot seat for initially suggesting that the attack on the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi which killed ambassador stevens and three other americans grew out of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-muslim video. the white house later reversed course and said it was a premeditated terrorist attack. david plouffe tried to clear up its inconsistency yesterday on "meet the press." >> information was being provided real time. obviously you're going to know more two weeks after an event and a week after an event and as ambassador rice -- that was the information from the intelligence community, provided for congress. the reason, obviously, we now have stipulated this is a terrorist attack is that came from the intelligence agencies. >> plouffe's comments after the director of national sbem generals released a mea culpa two days e
continues as it becomes clear the obama administration knew about it. >> there's a cover-up they don't want the american people to know what really happened there. >> sean: and islamic leaders around the globe want to limit your free speech. now rallying tonight in america.
that cnn discovered it, the obama administration, remember, was still downplaying the possibility that this was a deliberate terrorist attack, but was instead part of the violent reaction all over the arab world to that anti-muslim youtube video. this is what they were publicly saying then. >> this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response, not to united states policy, not to obviously the administration, not to the american people. it is in response to a video, a film, that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. >> now, even in that early stage, many in the foreign policy and global security community doubted that explanation. the journal certainly raises questions about that. neither "360" nor cnn rushed to air with details from the journal. we didn't publicly announce we had found it and within hours of finding it, we informed the family of ambassador stevens. cnn did not publicly announce we had found it out of respect for the family. instead, as cnn does with every story, our correspondents and our pr
of preemptive strike against iran, imagine that happens, what does the obama administration do if it's still in power come november and the election? what do you do? >> well, i mean, that's the dilemma in terms of turning to military action that may well be necessary at some point. israel probably has -- certainly has the capability to in some ways delay, you know, the advance towards that nuclear line, but perhaps does not have the ability to destroy the entire program. and that's the conundrum when you get to military action is in many respects, if you start this fight, one of two things has to happen. you have to continue to regime change as we did in iraq. that's a legitimate policy option but obviously a very expensive one. but the other is should it not destroy iran's nuclear program, you probably make that iranian bomb inevitable, because you can destroy facilities but you can't destroy knowledge. >> richard williamson, let's assume mitt romney wins in november. his rhetoric has been even stronger against president ahmadinejad and iran. what would a romney administration do if israel
politics out of what was a terrible tragedy. and i think the obama administration has a lot of good things on foreign policy to talk about. he's president of the united states. i think, you know, the situation was unfortunately and all the information sometimes doesn't come out as timely as people would like because it's the fog of war. but i think people have great confidence in barack obama's abilities on foreign policy and how he's managed difficult situations overseas. >> john, as mitt romney has said president obama didn't level with american people about that. to that quote, here's what david plouffe said over the weekend. >> that is preposterous and really offensive to say that. once information was received, it was distributed. this record on terrorism takes a back seat to no one. >> is there a political danger in going after the president on this? does it look a little opportunistic in a situation where four americans are dead? >> well, we are seeing -- i think paul ryan is right. we're seeing the obama foreign policy dissolve in front of our eyes. we do have all hell breaking loo
. this is nothing new to the obama administration. but it is new to hear him speak at length on this issue. so maybe what it will do is to open people's eyes to what's happening to women and girls in this country, specifically. >> victoria? >> the rhetoric used, where it's slavery. you don't have a choice. you didn't leave because you couldn't. and i wanted to talk about one sub segment of sex trafficking which deals with latin american women. over the past two decades what we've seen these immigrant smugglers going to small towns in mexico, very poor villages and saying hey, we can get you a job cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables. it's going to cost about $2,000 but you can pay that off once you cross the border. so they come over and you fall into the same pattern of sexual abuse and tell you you're not worth it, it's your fault. >> and you have a debt to repay. >> on top of that, you don't know english and there is the threat of being undocumented that i can call ins at any moment if you don't do what i say. add on the threats and the women never leave unless there's an external force that come
and a string of decisions. and the obama administration has said that it glees. it's not defending the law, but a group from the republican congress is defending it. >> they're also going to have to look at california's prop 8, to review that, the amendment to the constitution is that marriage is between a man and a woman. >> they look at that and the lower courts threw that out. they said that under the supreme court's precedence in another case about gay rights, that the california voters could not amend the constitution to exclude same-sex marriage once same-sex marriage had already been offered in california. >> higher education admissions. at the heart of this case, abgait fisher, because fisher says she was denied to the university of texas because she is white. what factors would affect their ruling? >> the court has ruled before that diversity is a compelling government interest. the government in other words has an interest, universities have an interest in compiling diverse classes of students, that diversity helps everyone and that they can look at an applicants's race in making
